Today while cooking with my grandma we made Greek Spinach Pie and Molten Lava Chocolate Cake. I can't wait to share it with you! It was sooo good. But before I can do that I must do as I previously promised and share with you our Glazed Apple Pork Chops.
The pictures didn't turn out as great as I was hoping and look less appetizing as they really were. I realized pork chops are a bit more difficult to photograph and still maintain appeal. So bare with me on this one.
So here we are ladies and gents...
Glazed Apple Pork Chops
(Note: Generally speaking, I am not really a fan of most pork products except for bacon. Though these were delicious and tender and therefore I like them.)
Step one: Account for all the ingredients (as always)
4 (¾ inch thick) center cut pork chops
¾ cup all-purpose flour
3 Tbsp. vegetable oil
4 cups (½ inch thick) peeled sliced cooking apples (Johnathan or Granny Smith)
½ cup firmly packed brown sugar
3 Tbsp. maple flavored syrup
Sprinkle of cinnamon
Step two: Sprinkle pork chops lightly with salt; dredge in flour.
Step three: Put chops in skillet and heat (usually when browning meat on a skillet you want to heat your oil before adding your meat though for some unknown reason it is the opposite for pork chops); brown chops on both sides. Remove chops from skillet; drain off drippings from skillet, reserving 1 Tbsp. In skillet.
(Note: We used an electric skillet because we could control the heat more precisely though a skillet on stovetop works just as well.)
Step four: Return chops to skillet, and top with apples, brown sugar, and syrup. Cover and simmer for 35 to 40 minutes.
Step five: Eat and ENJOY!
